The PMBOK® refers to the concept of progressive elaboration as a recommended method for defining the project’s scope and producing project outcomes.

  • Apply progressive elaboration concepts on the creation of project deliverables
  • Use the Wave Concept to develop project deliverables in a collaborative meeting setting
  • Keep stakeholders focused on the deliverable or task at hand during meetings

This webinar is the Secondin a 4 part series series on Managing Risk by Solutions Cube.  Although this module is a part of the series – each module in the series can be taken individually.

Do You Know All The Risks On Your Project?

Many Risk Management activities stop far too soon defining project risks, focusing only on the obvious 10 – 20 risks that quickly come to mind.

This short sighted approach to identifying project risks leaves the project exposed to many risks that will go unmanaged and result in problems and issues to be resolved later during the project.

To effectively define project risk, the team needs to clearly differentiate between definite causes that exist in the project environment, uncertainties that might occur as a result of these causes and the impacts to project objectives if these uncertainties occur.

The Risk Management Series of in depth webinars will introduce participants to techniques for defining a Risk Management Process and using this process to progressively build a Risk Register including: identifying risks using a Risk Meta-Language, Assessing Risks with quantitative techniques, understanding the 8 risk responses and selecting the appropriate Risk Response for the project risks and monitoring risks throughout the project.

Solutions Cube Group’s Identifying All of the Risks On Your Projects will teach your project teams how to identify all of the project risks that may need to be managed throughout the life of a project.

They will learn how to leverage other project deliverables to uncover, describe and ultimate assess and respond to project risks.

In the Creating Clear Project Risk Statements webinar, participants learn:

  • What existing project deliverables can be used to uncover project risks
  • How to use the Risk Meta-Language to drive out risk statements and fully differentiated between cause, uncertainty and project impact
  • Techniques for identifying project risks
  • Techniques for assessing which risks need to be managed more aggressively versus those that should be placed on the Risk Watch List

This webinar is the First in a 4 part series series on Managing Risk by Solutions Cube.  Although this module is a part of the series – each module in the series can be taken individually.

Uncertainty Is Not The Same As Risk

As with many things in life, all projects are subject to uncertainty, however uncertainty is not the same as “risk”. Because all projects are initiated to produce change in the current environment, risk during the project lifecycle is a natural occurrence.

Project Risks can be negative “threats” to be minimized as well as positive “opportunities” to be exploited during the life of a project.

Effective Project Risk Management recognizes both types of risks and is the key contributor to “project success”, but effective Risk Management doesn’t just happen – it is orchestrated and managed throughout the project lifecycle.

The Risk Management Series of in depth webinars will introduce participants to techniques for defining a Risk Management Process and using this process to progressively build a Risk Register.

The Risk Register will include:

  • Identifying risks using a Risk Meta-Language,
  • Assessing Risks with quantitative techniques,
  • Understanding the 8 risk responses and  selecting the appropriate Risk Response for the project risks
  • Monitoring risks throughout the project.

In this 1 hour in-depth webinar participants learn:

  • The difference between Project Risk and Uncertainty
  • The value of including Opportunities and Threats in the scope of risk management
  • How to recognize the characteristics of a successful risk management effort
  • How to avoid factors that lead to failed risk management activities
  • The steps for preparing to run a successful risk management effort

Solutions Cube Group’s Preparing for the Successful Risk Management Effort will help your project teams understand the characteristics of a successful risk management effort.

The sessions will share techniques that can be used on every risk management effort to understand the risk culture of an organization and achieve a more effective risk management effort that balances the impacts of project uncertainties with the effort needed to prevent or encourage the uncertain events.
